Default Merging backup files SMS messages

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I wanted to know if it is possible to merge backed up files SMS messages, put them all together from various backup files and upload the whole thing to my current phone.

Problem that occured was that i switch between the storm and the 8900 and somehow, during a device switch, i must have somehow missed the option to keep the SMS settings or the backup didnt work fully.

Just wanted to get back some of the messages...

Let me know guys,

Thanks

Thanks. It seems the ABC Amber app trial has limitations on what it can import during the trial. $20 is pretty steep for a one time use app.

Just looked at the magic berry - Im able to split the file or export to text, but im still not able to combine the ipd files or databases to make one and then bulk upload to my phone...

any ideas?

You're back to ABC Amber...

I think there might be another application that works with IPD, but I don't recall the name or if it ever even got off the ground. Check our Aftermarket Software section here... search for "ipd"
